Don't worry, Khuent Rose, it's not about being "green", Panorama is always kind of surreal. And the Panorama night tempo makes it even more so. I know that speed is a requisite of Panorama performances, but unfortunately you miss a lot of what the arranger is doing. These cool down versions are very refreshing. And BTW, while I understand why it is done, I concur with everyone who complain about the voice tags.

The question that I have is if this version took 15 mins to execute how fast was this performed? '98 was one of my "green" years in pan so I don't remember most of what happened at panoramas: like a strange dream.

The Power of Len "Boogsie" Sharpe... It is normal in New York for front line players to carry their own personal instruments sometimes to a panyard. However, this was the first time I ever saw bass players rolling a six bass into a yard to make sure there is a pan for them to play.

Mr. Sharpe, That is fantastic. It is nice to hear a slow tune for a change. My breathing is still slow and controlled (smile). I like the arrangement. You get a thumbs up for that one. Keep up the good work.

I do not know music but I have a keen ear. I really enjoyed this version of High Mas and I find the tempo especially correct to dance with my pardner. "Oh what bliss". Sincerely Gail Ann.

Best yard vibe ever! We never knew how many we had - people kept coming until Panorama Thursday and about 140 hit the museum stage. And - as always, PLEASE get the voice tag off this music.
